Issue 18
The rebellious so-what style of the '80s, masculinity, and
sexuality all gather in one piece this season: the oversized coat.
his autumn's must-have had been interpreted in many ways. If you want to emphasise on your femininity, let the coat be the prima donna of your look. Worn with a belt as seen at Lanvin and Proenza Schouler's show, this accentuates the waist by creating an irresistible hourglass silhouette. Alternatively, as the fall season is always associated with the big chill and a dark colour palette, urban-chic designer Alexander Wang and mystique-bound Haider Akermann combine a grey coat with furry scarves or gloves for the comfortable and confident chic we all love. However, the main focus on the trend had been on collections presented in Paris by Stella McCartney and Céline, who both used the famous ruby red and white check print on the coats for a scandalous and spellbinding look.

So, whether you want to emphasise your figure or bring brightness to the daily routine, an oversized coat would easily make both possible. Let the coat help you!
